Application

Shields and Sang M3 Insect Medium has been used to culture Drosophila cell lines, larvae, and testes. 
Developed for the culture of Drosophila cell lines.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Insect tissue culture media have been formulated to mimic the main properties of the hemolymph of specific insects. A survey of the formulas of these media reveals significant differences in their composition. When supplemented with 5-20% heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum, Shields and Sang M3 medium has been found to support the rapid growth of both primary and established cultures of Drosophila melanogaster cells.

Because physical form and function are intimately linked, mechanisms that maintain cell shape and size within strict limits are likely to be important for a wide variety of biological processes. However, while intrinsic controls have been found to contribute to

To understand how long-range patterning gradients are interpreted at the cellular level, we investigate how a gradient of expression of the Four-jointed kinase specifies planar polarised distributions of the cadherins Fat and Dachsous in the Drosophila wing. We use computational

Spermiogenesis is a dynamic process leading to alterations in cell morphology. In spermiogenesis, the roles of the histone chaperones are largely unknown. Here, I report the unexpected roles of two Nap family proteins, CG5017/Hanabi and nucleosome assembly protein 1 (Nap1)

Successful Drosophila cell culture relies on media containing xenogenic components such as fetal bovine serum to support continuous cell proliferation. Here, we report a serum-free culture condition that supports the growth and proliferation of Drosophila S2R+ and Kc167 cell lines.
